Dictator of the People's Republic of America

The eggs have nothing at all to do with this post, but I needed something in here that wasn't so utterly depressing. Again, the white one is for comparison.

Today, I got a monster-sized egg and found a smaller brown egg which must have been from Tuesday since that's the last time the birds had access to the space where the egg was found. I'm guessing the dark brown eggs are from a barred rock based on the black petticoat feather I found stuck to the big one.

That's all the fluff, I have today.

I don't want to sound overboard here, but I am truly scared for this country. I believe we are closer to a dictatorship than ever before and I can only hope and pray that we can pull out of this somehow.

What makes me think we are in big trouble?

The Health Care Law--
This thing took over 1/6 of our economy. We still don't know everything that is in it, but the more we see, the worse it gets.

How about Sec. 9006 which will require small businesses to submit 1099 forms for the purchase of any good or service over $600? And they claim to wonder why there are no jobs. This addition to the tax code may affect your ability to buy gold. FDR took all the gold in 1933; this regime is nudging you away from it.

Financial Reform--
The wannabe dictator signed this one yesterday at the Ronald Reagan Building. Nice thumb-in-the-eye there, Barack.

Check out my previous posts on the topic. Chris Dodd said of the bill, "It took a crisis to bring us to the point where we could actually get this job done." and "No one will know until this is actually in place how it works."

National Popular Vote--
The folks over at sure want me to shut up about this. The organization's leaders have said, “When people complain that it’s an end run,” Dr. Koza said, “I just tell them, ‘Hey, an end run is a legal play in football.’ ’’ and "Barry Fadem, the campaign's president, believes the 20-25 states needed to control the Electoral College will adopt the compact before the 2012 election."

Internet Kill Switch--
The left already owns the media. Those of us who want to learn the real truth have to find it ourselves. Where do we look? The internet and Fox News. They are well on their way to giving the president the power to kill the internet for as long as six months!

Presidential Assassination Program--
The regime is defending their right to kill citizens off the battlefield for being suspected terrorists. What?

Attacks on Private Business--
From the auto industry to the oil industry to the fishing industry. American businesses are under attack. Despite Nancy Pelosi's views on unemployment benefits, there are no benefits if there are no employed people left to pay taxes. God help us when they get a climate bill passed!

Sounds benign doesn't it? This cancerous bill is an assault on the 1st Amendment and will basically ensure that only unions will be able to contribute to campaigns. Even the NRA sold out on this one.

Immigration Reform--
If you were trying to push the government over the brink while buying yourself more voters, what better way than to stop enforcing the border and grant millions of illegals amnesty. This regime is going so far as to sue Arizona for trying to enforce the law and protect the border.

Infringe on the 2nd Amendment--
Obviously some of these things are going to tick off the populace, so better make sure that the little people are not able to defend themselves from tyranny. The 2nd amendment was upheld by a slim 5-4 margin this year. If you can't go through the Constitution, go around it with treaties and international law.

Stack the Courts--
Sotomayor, Kagan. Enough said.

Folks, this is after only 18 months and I am sure I am forgetting stuff that should be here (like the Wannabe ordering BP to pay). We have a lame duck congress we are going to have to contend with soon, and with an 11% approval rating, they ain't got nothin' to lose. I can only pray that most of this can be undone and undone before it is too late for the Republic.


  1. I read your post and sat and tried to compose a comment when I decided I needed to grab a cold Corona, sit on my deck, and watch the hummingbirds at the feeders tank up for the evening and the moonvine blossoms open before my eyes. Gives me reason to praise Him every day.

    Obama and his ilk make me feel dirty....Have to sit in my backyard and rejoice in what is right in the world.

    Keep up the good fight, Kristin. We are with you.

  2. Linking this post at TCL FB. Good job.

    You said:

    Today, Glenn Beck said our Republic is over with the signing of the financial bill yesterday. I hope he's wrong, but each day I see it slipping away.

  3. Good post, Kristen. Depressing, but truthful. Thanks.

  4. I too get depressed when I see what's happening - we had a wonderful country. I'm glad all y'all are out here, at least there's a bunch of us.

  5. I'm sorry to be such a downer. I heeded Betty Ann's advice, poured a glass of wine and spent the evening outside with the birds.

    Last night I heard that the Bible says "Fear not" or "Do not fear" some 365 times. I will do my best to believe Him.

  6. Thank you for the link, TCL. :)

  7. 11 For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

    Jeremiah 29:11 (New International Version)

    Dear Lord, I hope and pray so...

  8. Fear is an energy of tyranny. Love and actions that enforce love are essential. However, I wish I knew God's timetable. Meanwhile, I have often told the joke: "Do you know how to make God laugh? Tell him your plan."

    I only know that so far God has played a key role in the choices I've made and how well even "unfortuate events" have turned out. In the "Miracle on 34th Street", "I believe" is essential. So, I believe that we are still able to turn things around in time.....

    Posted on my refrigerator is this: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to propser you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jer. 29:11)

  9. That one needs to go on my fridge too. Thank you, Scott.

    I really do have the best followers.

  10. I see that it's on Gail Ellen's list, too! It's one of my favorite passages.

  11. Kristin, my young beautiful friend, never forget, Margret Thatcher said, "socialism always fails when they run out of other peoples money". AND ... Chris F***ing Dodd created most of the problems that led us down this path.

    Head up and we stick together to defeat these MORONS! Do I hear a Rah rah rah! That's my girl.

  12. Kristin, I think we're all of the same mind. And, that gives me hope. There are millions of us out here with faith in God, His Word, and each other.

    Nice eggs. God does more ways than one.

  13. Kristin, the Tsunami coming in November will knock them all flat on their @$$e$! God willing.

  14. Kristin, you must do more than "Do your best to believe him". You must believe with all your heart and put on the full armor of the Lord. As we all must. Amen.

  15. Betty Ann, I do that. I was only referring to fear in my comment. It's very very hard not to be afraid even when you do believe with all your heart.

  16. Reposted at, as point/ counterpoint to the War Planners post

  17. Scott....yes, you and I have clearly been reading the same BOOK....:-) It's so nice to know another person with the same favorite passage.....

  18. It seems increasingly clear that the 2010 midterm election will be a watershed moment for America. The GOP need to take back at least the House of Representatives in order to stop what is left of Obama's agenda. Sadly, as pointed out here, much of it may already be in place and it may be too late to stop America's slide into a Leftist Totalitarian State.

  19. Never too late.....depending on the strength of the forces that move in a diverging direction....

  20. I agree with Betty Ann, "Obama and his ilk make me feel dirty..." Thankfully I have two little miniature long-haired dachshunds that make me laugh and take away that ick feeling. Who knew dogs could make one feel "clean". Heh. I would also just say that I think God is letting this happen for a reason. Time to choose sides...the blessing or the curse. There's not going to be any wishy-washy, sit-back-and-relax-and-watch-it-unfold-from-the-couch-via-the-flat-screen for us this time. I believe, and I may be wrong here, but I think we're heading into a time when God will begin separating the wheat from the chaff. But He will be with us as will all these awesome that makes me not despair too much.
